  • Abstract The sterile insect technique (SIT) is currently being used for the control of many agricultural pests, including some lepidopteran species. The SIT relies on the rearing and release of large numbers of genetically sterile insects into a wild population. The holokinetic chromosomes of Lepidoptera respond differently to radiation than do species where there is a localized centromere. This difference has enabled a variation of the SIT to be developed for Lepidoptera where a substerilizing… CONTINUE READING
